Plays

  • 381 BLEECKER
    It’s 2015, and Meg, an avant-garde choreographer in her early 60s, is losing the West Village apartment where she’s spent her entire adult life. When her sister, Ellen, shows up with her son, David, to help Meg pack, the two women must reckon with a complicated snarl of old wounds connected to their brother’s battle with AIDS in the 1980s.
  • WHILE I'VE GOT YOU HERE--
    WHILE I'VE GOT YOU HERE-- is a non-linear performance text that interrogates the nature of the self—and of consciousness—by fracturing a single person’s embodied experience of the past and present into the bodies and voices of ten different performers.
  • The Caregiving Project
    The Caregiving Project is an interactive solo work that weaves together autobiographical storytelling, live audience interview, and other participatory performance techniques to investigate the complexities of caregiving in the many ways it appears in our lives. The audience generates the majority of the text in the live moment of the performance, guided by the malleable framework of the performer's questions and stories.
